Let me start by saying myself and my family have used Spycamera/Greenfeathers equipment for a number of years now, mainly with the wireless birdbox kit and have always been really happy with the service and equipment. Last nesting season my brother in law purchased a 1080p wifi camera and the pictures/videos blew everything else out of the water! I decided to upgrade for next year and have recently installed my new kit. So why only four stars? Firstly, if I could give the camera six stars, I definitely would. The video and pictures you get are not far short of Springwatch quality, couldn’t be better, very happy indeed, delighted in fact! I decided to buy the full monty of de-luxe nest box, wifi camera, interior light, cables, the full shebang! To be honest, I was torn about replacing my nest box that has been occupied every year for many years now, but hey, it’s DE-LUXE and purpose built for the job, so this did sway me. When the goodies arrived, the first thing that struck me was the size of the box. Now I do realise that the dimensions are advertised for all to see, but I defy anyone who has always used a “standard” box not to have a slight ‘jaw drop’ when you clap eyes on your replacement. To say it looks large compared to the standard is an understatement, but to be fair, it is quality timber and really well made by people who probably know a lot more about what attracts our feathered friends to nesting sites than me. Here is my whinge. I believe that the installation process could be made much easier for the buyer. The cables for the camera and light have to be gathered together and cramped into the loft space of the box as neatly as you can which is slightly annoying. I can’t see any reason why the apex of the box cannot be a enclosed space which houses the camera and it’s cables/connections with a pre drilled hole for the camera lens to poke through. This would make for a quicker installation and a much neater finish. I suppose it would also rule out the chance of an inquisitive occupant “investigating” the roof space. That said, if there’s a family fledging come next June I’ll be very happy and, cap in hand, revert my rating to FIVE stars!!
